was ahead of the curve of almost every politician i know in the united states senate and congress, when he offered the iranian freedom and security act. the syrian accountability act. those were not just since things have percolateed in the arab spring. those were well in advance. he knows more about the interactions between mahmoud ahmadinejad and chavez than any of our politician. so in terms of who or enemy is and where the war is being fought, he was at the first one to use the term islamo fascist. but he was told he can't use the term. in christianity we have people who handle snakes and speak in tongues and people who might show up on easter and christmas. that whole realm of christianity is the same in islam. the simon wiesenthal in l.a. -- received an award for holding a conference in indonesia that brought imams and survivors from the holocaust, and it was on the newspaper, if my friend ahmadinejad says the holocaust didn't exist, i call him a liar. so you can look at the friends of america who are muslims and you look at the enemy who are trying to take the united states and repl
the united states senate. this would start in the senate, not in the house. there were four democrats and four republicans. the democrats led by chuck schumer include bob menendez from new jersey, dick durbin from illinois and michael bennett from colorado, on. on the republican side led by john mccain, including they include lindsey graham because john mccain can't do anything without lindsey graham alongside of him. they also include marco rubio from florida and geoff flake, the other senate from arizonaother senate from arizona. democrats insisted any immigration reform bill had to include a path to citizenship. had to do something about these 11 million people estimated, i think it's higher than that, who had been here, came here illegally, have lived here a long time had their families have jobs, have houses have kids in school. some have kids in the military belong to local churches members of the community, had to do something being them and allow -- give them a path to staying here permanently as american citizenship. democrats always insisted on
you're seeing in the senate and house right now. >> senator daschle, if you parachuted into the united states senate today, newly elected senator, would you recognize the place from the places you group in politically? >> i think you would. i think that obviously the institution itself is still very much intact. we had a discussion of our rules in the last couple of weeks. i think you're going to see the institution continue to evolve. but the basic components are still there, principles are still there. the founding fathers came up with a unique way for everyone to have a role, small states and large states and to contribute. those principles are still there. i'm act which encouraged. howard is right, demographics are changing politics and as they change on immigration, they will change on climate and a number of areas i think the american people will demand senators and congressman find common ground a lot more effectively. we're beginning to see that in the first three weeks of this session. >> let me say also senator and governor dean, the demographics will also change the debt deb
vulnerable democrats who had barely won their seats to expand the majority of the united states senate. >> and in the house. not the majority but to pick up eight seats? >> pick up eight seats after in 30 states, they elected republican governors and republican legislate temperatures and redistrict seats to make them. if that did not happen the republicans would not be in charge of the house but the resdrithing that happened in that made those seats safe or the kind of democratic year that we had in 2012 not enough to change the chamber. >> so they've got to do some rebranding and rethinking. maybe rethinking some of their policies, too. michael, great to visit with you? >> thanks. >> a lot of fun. thap for coming in. you know the political landscape. we appreciate that. we will get you back in soon. >> thanks. >> you can form michael on twitter at michaelpmeehan. see you soon. >> this is "the bill press show," live on your radio and current tv.

of the united states. >> the nra is reacting to centesenator dianne feinstein 's new legislation to ban assault weapons. the nra said in a statement " senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law- abiding citizens for decades. it is disappointing but not surprising that she is once again focused on card telling the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system. " the american people know gun bans do not work and we are confident congress will reject senator feinstein's long headed approach. >> house minority leader nancy pelosi may have ties to the city of baltimore. but that is not stopping her from carry on the san francisco forty-niners. colosio was born and raised in the maryland town, and her father and brother were both members of the city. he said " pretty excited have two of my favorite teams going into the super bowl.
